iCan House™ offers a variety of social skills programs, starting at age 8 and continuing through adulthood. We strive to offer not only social skills and life skills instruction, but social opportunities for each of our members that help teach real world skills as well. This allows learning to happen through both direct and indirect methods, which we feel is the most natural and effective way to learn social and life skills. In addition, we work hard to provide a safe, welcoming, and fun environment in which our members feel comfortable to learn and experience the joy of socializing with their peers.
Because we cater to a variety of ages, we have developed several unique programs to meet the needs of this growing community. Please take a moment to look through each of the program descriptions below and learn about how you can get involved! Click on the links after each program description to find an even more in depth explanation of that program.
iClub members participate in structured and engaging activities which facilitate interaction with others. In a safe and supportive environment, they can practice and develop important social skills, such as eye contact, conversation skills, perspective-taking skills, and turn taking. At iClub, members are consistently working to improve self-esteem, improve social skills understanding and abilities, and have fun! Groups meet weekly and are divided into to small groups based on age and developmental readiness.
